Default Is Part 91 Corp Flight Ops considered "essent

Flight crews appear to be exempt from various travel bans, restrictions, quarantines etc. One could presume it's directed toward commercial flight crews, but what about part 91 corp flight departments or those flying for a sole owner?

Don’t know.
Best guess?
Is the flight in furtherance of the owners business and is that business deemed essential?
Or is this a party flight to Fantasy Island?

We, Part 91, haven’t had a question raised on being “essential”.

As long as you are in uniform, most hotels don't/won't care..they assume you are essential. Some area's did have rules in place and we're asking people for their letter at check-in, but like I said, haven't had anybody ask, since I am usually traveling in uniform. Have heard of a employee with us that did get asked for his letter wearing his regular clothes at check-in at a hotel.

It probably depends on your company’s business, and if your chief counsel can issue an essential letter. Our company manufactures many healthcare products including ventilators and masks, so we were issued essential worker letters back in March.
